Ok, I know it's not a big shocker, but I love stores that sell local products! Thanks to Kay over at http://menmyhouseblog.blogspot.com/, I have a new favorite boutique - Plantation Home in Kapolei. (You can check them out at http://plantationhomedecor.blogspot.com/.) Walking in was overwhelming because I loved everything, including Kay's beautiful furniture pieces. And so much of it is made right here on the Islands! I was good today - just bought a few tea towels and some beachy accents for the house. But I've got my eye on some other things!!! And I'm already forming a Christmas shopping list in my head. There's a pineapple shaped pillow that's got Mom's name all over it.
I was also excited to hear that they are trying to move out their more standard items to make room for more local kine. (Did I pull that lingo off? I'm not sure!) That's an exciting prospect, and I'll be sure to go back and check it out soon!
